Filed Under Freddie Stroma

Deadline is reporting that Freddie Stroma will be joining 13 Hours, a film by Michael Bay about the assault on the U.S. compound in Benghazi. He will play a brash Yale grad who is an undercover CIA agent in Libya.

The film is based on the book Thirteen Hours: The Inside Account Of What Really Happened In Benghazi by Mitchell Zuckoff, which follows the true story of the events on September 11, 2012, when terrorists attacked a U.S. State Department Special Mission Compound and a CIA station in Benghazi, Libya.

Release Date Announced for Beauty & The Beast; Another Potter Alumni Cast

It has just been announced that Disney’s live-action version of Beauty and the Beast will be released on March 17th 2017, two years from tomorrow. Seems a long time to wait, but filming won’t begin on the project until this Summer. It has also been revealed that Emma Thompson will be playing Mrs. Potts, as was rumored a couple weeks ago.

In other exciting news Alan Menken, the original composer for Disney’s 1991 animated version, will be writing the score for this version. Menken has won 8 Oscars for his work, including 2 for Beauty and the Beast. The film will feature new recordings of the original songs in addition to several new songs written by Menken and Sir Tim Rice.

Rupert Grint’s ‘Moonwalkers’ Acquired for USA Release
Filed Under Rupert Grint

After a successful showing at this years SXSW it has been announced that Rupert Grint’s Moonwalkers has been picked up for release in the United States. Alchemy has bought the rights to the film, written by Dean Craig. A description of the film may be read below:

What if Apollo 11 never actually made it? What if, in reality, Stanley Kubrick secretly shot the famous images of the moon landing in a studio, working for the US administration? This is the premise of a totally plausible conspiracy theory that takes us to swinging sixties London, where a stubborn CIA agent (Ron Perlman a.k.a. Hellboy) will never find Kubrick but instead is forced to team up with Rupert Grint’s lousy manager of a seedy rock band to develop the biggest con of all time, in this riotous, high-tempo action-comedy.

The film will be showing again at SXSW on Tuesday and Thursday.

Emma Watson Talks ‘Beauty & the Beast’ and ‘Colonia’ in New Interview

In a new interview with Total Film, Emma Watson discusses her latest roles. First, she talked about Colonia, which will be released later this year. The full interview can be found in the May issue of Total Film, available March 13th. Below are some snippets via The Irish Examiner.

‘It really challenged me. It really pushed me to the brink, this role. I got sent the script and my agent sent me the Wikipedia page on Colonia Dignidad. I immediately went, ‘Oh my God, I’m not sure!’ it was really, really, really heavy and really awful subject matter, but the script was such a page-turner and so well written and I’m really a big fan of Daniel Bruhl. I really liked the director [Florian Gallenberger]. It all just kind of felt right: a really intelligent female leading role character. It felt like the right thing to do.”

“I’ve just always been aware that it was a bit of a double-edged sword. I think I never really thought necessarily I’d become an actress or become famous. It’s something I felt very passive in. It was something that happened to me. They came to my school. They saw me and they took photographs of me. I was taken up to London to audition. I just happened to be picked up and put in one of the biggest film franchises of all time. I wanted to feel active in what happened to me in my life. I wanted to be able to move myself into a place where I felt like I was driving my career and my life, rather than just responding to things that happened to me. I wanted to try to make it my own.”

She added: “It feels like I was building a portfolio over the last five, six years. Now I feel like I’m ready to really be carrying films. I’m really just ready now to focus on my career full time and go full steam ahead. It’s exciting at the moment.”

Second, she was asked about the upcoming live-action version of Beauty and the Beast film which also stars Luke Evans as Gaston and Dan Stevens as Beast.

“I sing, so that’s really unexpected,” she said. “I’ve never had to do that for a film role before, and I think people will be interested to see me do something very different like that. It gives me a different challenge, really. That’s terrifying in and of itself!”

Finally she mentions The Queen of Tearling, which we reported about some time ago:

When asked about her future career plans, she hinted a job behind the lens could soon beckon.

She is working with Harry Potter producer David Heyman, in an executive producer role on a multi­part adaptation of fantasy series Queen Of The Tearling in which she will also star.

“I really like it,” she told the magazine. “For me, to want to sign up to a series again, I wanted to have a certain amount of autonomy and control within that. Working with David’s been great. I’d love to direct something one day. I’d love to produce as well, so it’s quite a nice way to start learning about that. Yeah, just dipping my toes into that world.”

‘Tom Felton Meets The Superfans’ Airing in March
Filed Under Tom Felton

Over the past few months Tom Felton has been visiting various fans and attending conferences to find super fans for all sorts of fandoms.  The fruits of his labor, Tom Felton Meets The Superfans, will be airing on BBC Three on March 23rd at 9pm!

From an earlier press release:

In November 2014 Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy, Harry Potter) will be in the midst of Convention season heading to Tulsa to attend one of the world’s largest film and TV cult festivals Wizard World and on this side of the Atlantic attending Comic Con at Birmingham’s NEC. Every year thousands of super fans come together at these locations – wearing elaborate and intricate costumes – to meet the ‘real’ people behind their favourite shows. For the young men and women who attend it can be a life changing and often overwhelming experience as they meet the stars they’ve idolised for years.

For Tom the convention tour has been part of his life for over a decade, but now as an adult and with some distance from the franchise that made him world famous, Tom wants to take a step back and look at the conventions from the side of the super fan – attempting to understand for the first time why these young people become so attached to these fantastical books, movies and TV series and more importantly by spending time with fans and hearing from his celebrity friends and co-stars ask: when does a fan become a fanatic?

1×60′, director and presenter is Tom Felton. Executive producer: Colleen Flynn and Andrew Palmer from KEO Films. Commissioning editor for the BBC is Elliot Reed.
